WATCH: Gabby Douglas Reminds Us Why She’s Amazing

By Kenrya Rankin Mar 07, 2016

In 2012, Gabby Douglas made history when she became the first woman of color—and the first African-American gymnast—to earn the title of individual all-around champion, and the first American gymnast to ever take home gold in both the individual and team competitions.

Just in case you forgot how awe-inspiring she is, the now 20-year-old dropped by the American Cup on Saturday (March 5) and shut things down. USA today reports that Douglas won the gold after posting the high score in every routine except the floor exercise. She is well on her way toward competing in her second Olympic games—something only six American women have done since 1980.

Watch a few of the routines that propelled Douglas to victory below.
